Pennant Hills President Phillip Hare stated, “Our Senior Men’s teams have doubled in the last 3 years and we now are continually fielding requests for a Girls AFL team. In response to this we have worked with Sydney AFL to hold 2 two Come N Try AFL sessions for Girls. If we get enough interest from these events we will be entering a Girls team in the 2015 Sydney AFL competition.” Libby Sadler, Female Programs Manager in NSW/ACT, urged girls of all abilities to come and try AFL. “Girls AFL is growing across Sydney and NSW and is a great game to keep Girls active and involved in Sport,” said Sadler. “If you like to Run, Jump, chase, Kick a ball, Mark a ball and the occasional tackle – AFL is for you. The senior Female AFL program is open for all girls 16 or older.” Charlotte Owen said – “I never thought I would like the game so much. It combines the best of all sports. I am looking forward to taking a speccy mark in a game and chasing down the opposition for a tackle.” DETAILS: Pennant Hills female Come N Try nights Tuesday February 24 (with Sydney Swans stars in attendance) Tuesday March 3 Both nights begin at 6:30pm Greenway Park, Cherrybrook For more information contact Philip Hare on 0409 205 213
